Get the Nordea Economic Outlook straight from our chief economist: Sign up for the webinar

Join us for the release of the Nordea Economic Outlook on 6 September. Register for the webinar with our chief economist for an inside look at Nordea’s latest forecasts.

The global economy has shown resilience in the first half of 2023. Despite central banks’ aggressive interest rate hikes and high inflation, consumer spending has generally held up, and labour markets remain strong. While inflation is easing in many countries, it continues to be a concern, with core inflation stubbornly above most central banks’ targets. 

Is monetary tightening working to cool the economy? Will central banks be able to deliver a soft landing and avoid a recession? And when can we expect to reach peak interest rates?

Join us for the release of the latest Nordea Economic Outlook on Wednesday, 6 September. Sign up for the webinar with Nordea Group Chief Economist Helge Pedersen for insights on these questions and much more.
